Post Workout REMIX RECIPE

So you put in the work and are now STARVING! What should you eat post-workout to 1.) Actually REFUEL your body and 2.) Stick to your nutrition goals?

The best answer depends on your workout type + intensity. My post-workout meals are not a one-size-fits-all suggestion, but here is a great tip to get started on the right track – skip alcohol or high-fat foods within the first hour of your workout. 

🍺 Alcohol can halt your recent training gains and stall your muscles from recovering properly. 

🍟 Healthy fats, like sliced avocado, are okay, but high fat/low nutrient foods that are greasy will leave you feeling sluggish + bloated, not fueled.

The Extreme Cobb Salad

Servings: 4

Ingredients

1 (8-oz.) raw chicken breast, boneless, skinless

2 ears corn on the cob, shucked

½ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)

4 cups chopped romaine lettuce

4 large hard-boiled eggs, chopped

1 cup chopped cucumber (approx. 2⁄3 medium)

1 cup chopped tomatoes (approx. 1½ medium)

1 medium avocado, chopped

8 slices cooked turkey bacon, chopped

½ cup ranch dressing (opt for one with minimal ingredients that are clean and easy to pronounce!)

Instructions

1. Heat grill (or grill pan) to medium-high.

2. Lightly coat chicken and corn with spray; season with salt.

3. Place chicken and corn on grill (or grill pan); cook for 10 minutes, turning as needed, until cooked through and slightly charred. Let cool until they can be handled.

4. Chop chicken; cut kernels from cob.

5. Evenly divide lettuce among four serving bowls; top evenly with chicken, corn, eggs, cucumber, tomatoes, avocado, and turkey bacon, arranging each in individual rows on top of lettuce.

6. Serve each bowl with 2 Tbsp. dressing.

#FaithforLifeFit: Lord, Guide my Steps. Direct my Focus and Intentions.

From my IG archives: Watch video here on Instagram

You are ONE part of the BODY and not ONE ☝🏻 part is valued over the other… we (all parts) work together for His agenda when we let Him get involved with our areas of frustration and weakness. I have seen this struggle create unrest in our relationships with health, body, self from Emotional eating to Restrictive eating and over exercising.

If our identity is off – if we don’t know we aren’t a mistake, we aren’t a burdensome annoyance or if we think we don’t matter – we won’t ever live up to our potential. But if we know and simply believe we are here for SOME purpose- even if we don’t yet know what it is – then we are more likely to feel empowered in doing something – even something seemingly small – no matter the context. We are more likely to take care of our health, and I believe it is the difference in being confident in the what to do “right now”.


What are some of the things about yourself or someone you love that you discounted devalued discouraged or misdirected that you could now start turning it over to God for transformation and turning it into something positive productive and in line with your divine purpose?

1 Corinthians 12:33 & Romans 6:13 were the scriptures I referenced. .

The devotional I’m reading is AWAKEN by Priscilla Shirer – this was my takeaways from day 35 “Recycled Parts”

Treat Not Cheat Recipe: Chocolate Caramel Cookie Balls

You are not on a diet… and so, it’s time to say peace out to that diet culture mentality ✌️

When foods are completely off-limits, you actually give up control over your food choices… and you become more likely to overeat whatever your favorite “cheat food” is when you’ve been severely restricting what you are “allowed” to eat.

This is absolutely a practice that takes time, but if you can tune into your body and what it needs, you are able to eat intuitively and enjoy the foods you love, while still getting the results you want in your health journey. 

Today’s delicious recipe is an incredible Chocolate + Caramel + Peanut Butter No-Bake Superfood Cookie that is sure to be a new family favorite once you whip up a batch!

Ingredients

– 1 cup all-natural peanut butter

– 1 tsp pure caramel extract

– 1 cup dry quick-cooking rolled oats

– ½ cup honey

– 1 cup Chocolate Vegan Shakeology

– 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut

Instructions

1. Combine peanut butter, extract, oats, honey, and Shakeology in a medium bowl and mix with a spatula or clean hands.

2. Roll mixture into 24 balls (about 1 inch in size). Flatten each slightly so that it is shaped like a traditional cookie. 

3. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. 

You can store these in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

A Moment For You: On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your relationship with food? What is one thing you could do to improve this rating?

Ingredients

– 4 oz soft tofu

– 1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology

– ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk

– 1 tbsp all-natural nut butter (almond, peanut, cashew)

– 1 medium strawberry, sliced (for garnish, optional)

Instructions

1. Place the tofu, Shakeology, almond milk, and nut butter in a food processor or blender – pulse until smooth.

2. Place mousse in a medium serving bowl; garnish with strawberry if you want! Other fun toppings could be shredded coconut, other sliced fruits, or even cacao nibs.

This recipe makes 1 serving.
